Yaya Education Trust (YET)

YET, a local community based non-profit organization in Matungu district of rural Kenya in collaboration with community members and Kopernik, has developed a project dubbed “Relieve the burden of carrying water for rural women.” This project aims to supply marginalized poor rural women with Q Drums for transporting large volumes of water over long distances, which is an alternative means to the traditional way of carrying water on the head, which leads to severe ill-health among women and children in the target area.

With the YET’s mission of providing practical solutions to the problems affecting needy and the marginalized members of the community, this project/ proposal shall help us improve the living conditions of women and children among poor community members by providing better means of water transport.
